We can all agree that we often feel our best during summer. We spend more time outside, the sun is up for longer, we spend days at the beach swimming in the sea, take time off school or work and the warmer temperatures generally make us happier! As a result of this, we often look and feel our best during the summer months.
With the end of sweet summer approaching, we’re here to give you some of our best tips on how to retain your glowy summer skin and your effortless, healthy beach hair!
1. Dewy, glowy summer skin & lips
The first step to retain your summer glow is to incorporate complexion products that nourish, protect against the change in temperature and most importantly, enhance your glow. Honey is a perfect ingredient to add to your skincare routine as it’s a powerhouse of nutrients, enzymes, and beneficial compounds that leave your skin feeling smooth, supple and hydrated.
Honey Infused routine for glowy summer skin
Step 1: Face Oil for glowing, healthy skin
Apply 2-3 drops of Honey Infused Face Oil to the palm of your hand and use fingertips to gently massage onto clean skin, as the last step in your skincare routine. For best results, use daily at night or mixed into your favorite day cream to restore and maintain nourished, hydrated, glowing skin.
In addition to Mirsalehi Honey, our Honey Infused Face Oil contains 95.7% cold-pressed botanical oils. These skin-loving, non-comedogenic oils and vitamin E protect the skin from damaging free radicals, promote even skin tone and texture, and strengthen the skin barrier.
Step 2: Beauty Balm for restored skin and highlighted cheekbones
Apply the Honey Infused Beauty Balm locally to dry, chapped skin such as your elbows and cuticles to instantly soothe and protect. For a radiant summer complexion, dab the Beauty Balm onto cheekbones, eyelids or the bridge of your nose to leave behind a subtle glow.
This Oil-Balm blend melts like honey and absorbs like an oil for instantly smooth, supple skin supercharged with 99% natural ingredients. It enhances your skin, revealing a softer, smoother, more supple complexion.
Step 3: Lip Oil for soft, plump lips
Simply glide the Honey Infused Lip Oil directly onto bare lips, or underneath your favorite lipstick for an extra dimension of hydration and shine. Tip: For the softest, smoothest finish, cleanse and exfoliate lips before applying.
Treat and highlight your lips with the golden hue and power of Mirsalehi Honey in one swipe. Use after use, lips will be softer, smoother, plumper and more defined with a naturally healthy shine.
2. Healthy & effortless beachy waves
In our book, beachy waves are the ultimate summer hairstyle! Whether you have straight, wavy or curly hair, there is a beach wave routine for every hair type. Here are some tips on how to look like you’ve spent all day at the beach AKA how to retain your beach hair!
Beach Wave Tip 1: Prevent frizz by adding extra moisture to your hair using a Leave-In Conditioner on damp hair. This will hydrate the hair, prevent frizz, and improve elasticity to reduce breakage.
Beach Wave Tip 2: Test out different drying techniques to see what works best for your hair type. You can use a diffuser attachment on your blowdryer to give you a more defined and voluminous look, while also providing more control over your style. Or you can go heatless and try the “plopping” method simply by braiding your damp hair and taking the braids out when your hair has dried completely.
Beach Wave Tip 3: The key to beachy waves is using a good Wave Spray which replicates salty sea water while also nourishing and protecting your hair. To apply, hold the spray at arm’s length, spritz the product onto hair, and scrunch to activate and define your waves. This technique will create a more textured look with an all-day hold.
3. Repair your hair & skin overnight
The key to healthy hair and glowing skin is using the right products and routines that support the health of your hair and skin. At Gisou, we’re big believers in the healing powers of honey and other natural ingredients for nurturing the skin and hair. Here is a routine that will help repair and nourish your hair and skin overnight:
Step 1: Use a few drops of Honey Infused Face Oil to help balance and repair your skin overnight. It contains potent antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to heal, nourish, and rejuvenate the skin while you sleep. You’ll wake up with glowing, radiant skin!
Step 2: Apply our Honey Infused Lip Oil to repair chapped lips overnight. It’s rich in fatty acids to smooth, condition, and restore dry lips. Leaving it on your lips overnight gives it more time to work its magic, resulting in smoother, plumper lips.
Step 3: Use our Honey Infused Hair Oil as an overnight treatment to rebuild and repair hair thanks to our key ingredient, Mirsalehi Honey. Section hair into 2 sections, then take 1 full syringe of the Honey Infused Hair Oil for each section and fully coat hair. Braid hair and let it absorb overnight. If the product isn’t fully absorbed, then give hair a light rinse or cleanse.
Step 4: For a more intense overnight hair treatment, combine a scoop of Honey Infused Hair Mask with 2-3 drops of the Honey Infused Hair Oil for additional moisture, to damp or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends. Allow the product to absorb overnight, then rinse thoroughly with cool water or wash as needed. Do this 1-2 times a week to repair and restore your hair.

With these tips you’ll be able to keep your hair and skin looking radiant through the end of summer, and up your summer glow at any time of the year! With the right products, routines and ingredients (honey!), your hair and skin can be healthy and glowy all-year-long.
